Stamping Techniques

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Summer Nights

Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping
Welcome to A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the July 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Summer Nights

Paper Pumpkin July 2020 Blop Hop - Summer Nights | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

July Paper Pumpkin - Summer Nights

  • Kit contains enough supplies to create nine postcards and coordinating envelopes, as well as nine die-cut tealight bags.
  • Card size: 4” x 5-1/4”
  • Coordinating Colors: Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Night of Navy

I adore the colors of this kit.  Reminds me of summer evenings (duh, of course), but also early fall. 

Here's a FOUR alternative ideas using the Summer Nights Paper Pumpkin kit and Summer Nights Add-On card pack.

Rock & Roll stamping technique with Summer Nights Paper Pumpkin July 2020 Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

How'd She DO That? Rock & Roll Summer Nights Card

  • On front of folded Pool Party card base (4-1/4" x 11), stamp fireworks image using "rock & roll" stamping technique
    • Ink up stamp with Coastal Cabana ink, then roll only the edges onto Night of Navy ink pad.  Stamp, clean and repeat as desired.
  • For sentiment - ink up stamp with Coastal Cabana ink, then add Night of Navy ink to top and bottom of image.  Stamp on label die cut (from kit) and adhere with dimensionals.
  • Add NEW Iridescent Pearls in the center of the fireworks.

How'd She DO That? Summer Nights Add-On Card  (features envelope)

  • If you're a reader of mine, you'll know that I love to use patterned lined envelopes to decorate my cards.  
  • The Summer Nights Add-On (154973) includes just such envelopes (along with 24 fabulously colored card bases)...super cute!
  • Trim out a 4" x 5-1/4" piece from the inside of the envelope.  
  • The banner is made with the NEW Banners Pick a Punch (I'm in love!).   Start with 1/2" x 4" piece of Night of Navy, cut both ends with punch.
  • The sentiment is stamped with Night of Navy ink.
  • Decorate card with die cuts from the kit. 

 

Paper Pumpkin July 2020 Blop Hop - Summer Nights | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

These cards couldn't be easier to make.   Plus the results are stunning!

How'd She DO That? Summer Nights QC Cards

  • First off - I totally CASED the layout of a card shown on page 126 from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.
  • Second off - the floral images are stamped directly onto the card with Blackberry Bliss ink (from the kit).  Then use Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to move ink around and add glitter (in person - these cards shine!)

Nothing's Better Than meets Happiest of Birthdays! (and Video)

I'm excited about sharing today's card, as it was a card both my grandson, Max and I made together.  He picked out the bundle, Nothing's Better Than, and then we started playing!  

As he turned 13 this spring (yes, he's now a teenager - wow!) - I was actually surprised (but delighted) he still wanted to craft with me.  And, since he is only 13, we called it a pink lemonade card

He also wanted to make sure I tell you all that he helped design the card.  Even at 13 - he melts my heart (in between the moody teen times - ha)!  Here's what we came up with...

Nothing's Better Than from Stampin' Up! - card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #happiestofbirthdays

DOstamping It's Your Day Pink Lemonade card:

  • Stamps/Bundles: Nothing's Better Than Bundle, Happiest of Birthdays
  • Paper:
    • Flirty Flamingo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Whisper White (3 x 4-1/4", scrap for cocktail die)
    • Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper (both strips 3/4" x 5-1/4")
  • Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana
  • Other:  Love You More Than Dies, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Stampin' Seal & Stampin' Dimensionals

Nothing's Better Than from Stampin' Up! - card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #happiestofbirthdays

I really liked the way the Nothing's Better Than stamp set went with the greeting from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set.  To see how it all came together, be sure to check out my How'd She DO That? video.  It showcases THREE birthday cards, including this one:

I'd like to invite you back tomorrow to see my Million Sales Achiever stamp set, Music from the Heart.  I'll be sharing the samples from my presentation at the Atlanta OnStage event.

On with today's card that features the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.

The Most Wonderful Time Product Medley includes stamps, paper, dies, and accessories that are perfectly coordinated for creating cards and more. A product medley is similar to our cardmaking kits and other project kits but without the predetermined projects

Stampin' Up! Most Wonderful Time Product Medley shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting

This was one of the cards I designed for a card ministry group I belong to.  This year our group made 385 Christmas cards...all in about 3-1/2 hours - we had lots of helping hands!

How'd She DO That? Most Wonderful Time card

  • Stamps: Most Wonderful Time (Product Medley) and Greatest Part of Christmas (Host stamp set)
  • Paper:
    • Thick Whisper White (11" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Whisper White (4" x 5-1/4" and scrap for punched sentiment)
    • Gold Foil Sheet (1" x 4")
  • Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento and Old Olive
  • Other:  Timeless Label Punch, Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, Whisper White Baker's Twine, SNAIL & Stampin' Dimensionals

   

Stampin' Up! Most Wonderful Time Product Medley shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting

DOstamping Tips:

  • Forest of trees: stamp tree image (from product medley) several times in Old Olive ink, create color variation by stamping off a couple times.
  • Brush on Wink of Stella to make your trees shimmer and shine!

The Most Wonderful Time Product Medley is a must-have for any Christmas card maker.  With it's variety of products, you will have everything you need in one convenient package.  I know you'll be reaching for the Most Wonderful Time product medley a lot!  Add it to your shopping bag today!

Stamping with the STARS #325: Shaker Card Inspiration with Frosted Foliage

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts325.  Today we're showcasing Shaker cards! 

#DOswts325 | Stamping with the STARS Shaker card inspiration hop #DOstamperSTARS #dostamperSTARS #christmascards

I knew right away I was going to reach for the Feels like Frost Suite of Products.  I'm tickled with the way it turned out.

Fun & Easy Shaker card using Stampin' Up!'s Frosted Foliage Bundle from Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS Inspiration #DOswts325 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #dostamperstars

How'd She DO That? Frosted Shaker card:

  • Stamps/Bundles: Frosted Foliage (bundle with Frosted Frame dies and SAVE 10%)
  • Paper:
    • Purple Posy (5-1/2" x 8-1/4" card base)
    • Seaside Spray (5" x 4-1/4 for die cut frame)
    • Window Sheets (2-5/8" x 2-7/8)
    • Feels Like Frost 6x6 Specialty Designer Series Paper (2-3/4" x 5-1/2")
  • Ink:  Versamark
  • Heat Emboss:  Swipe Embossing Buddy over Window Sheet.  Stamp greeting with Versamark ink (being careful to stamp straight down, then pull straight up).  Cover with White Stampin' Emboss Powder, then flick off the excess.   To avoid warping the window sheet, melt with Heat Tool by starting under the window sheet, then above window sheet, rotating back and forth until powder is melted.
  • Other:  Frosted Frames Dies,  Shimmery Crystal Effects, Ice Stampin' Glitter, Snail Adhesive & Foam Adhesive Strips

Fun & Easy Shaker card using Stampin' Up!'s Frosted Foliage Bundle from Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS Inspiration #DOswts325 #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #dostamperstars

DOstamping Shaker Card Tips:

  • Adhere DSP to folded card base.
  • Die cut "frosted frame".  Then die cut a "window frame" from center. 
  • Stamp and heat emboss window sheet as described above.  Then adhere window sheet to back of frame using Foam Adhesive strips.  (note: half will be on the window sheet and half will be on the frame.)  
  • At this point, I do recommend swiping the embossing buddy over the inside of the window sheet (will help a lot with static cling)
  • ONLY remove 2 backing sheets (the top and one side) from the Foam Adhesive strips and adhere those edges to the DSP on the card.
  • Then add approximately 1/2 teaspoon of Snowflake Sequins to inside the window.
  • Remove the last two strips of backing sheets to seal off the shaker.
  • OPTIONAL:  prior to adhering the window sheet to the frame, use the new Shimmery Crystal Effects and Ice Stampin' Glitter to add "frost" to the foliage on the frame (will take about 15 minutes to dry).  I like to do this on the Silicone Craft Sheet.

That might seem like a lot of steps, but it came together surprisingly fast.  

If you enjoy making fun technique cards and want to spread a little yuletide cheer, this Frosted Shaker Card is for you!  Be sure to  add the Frosted Foliage Bundle to your shopping bag today!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stampin' Up! Beauty & Joy: Easy Spotlight Card

Today I'm sharing a card that made me smile when I made it...love it when that happens.  First off, I'm using a new 2019 Holiday Catalog stamp set called, Beauty & Joy.  

2019 Holiday Catalog Beauty & Joy stamp set, with EASY Spotlight Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

This Distinktive* stamp set has a special texture that gives added depth and dimension in a single step, creating photo-realistic images.  The basket particularly shows off the Distinktive style. 

How'd She DO That? Beauty & Joy Spotlight card

  • Stamps: Beauty & Joy
  • Paper:
    • Crumb Cake (8-1/2" x 4-1/4" card base) 
    • Very Vanilla (3-1/2" square)
    • Early Espresso (3-5/8" square)
  • Ink:  Crushed Curry, Terracotta Tile, Soft Suede, Early Espresso
  • Other:   Sponge Daubers, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Linen Thread, SNAIL, Glue Dots & Stampin' Dimensionals

2019 Holiday Catalog Beauty & Joy stamp set, with EASY Spotlight Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

DOstamping Tips:

  1. I recommend stamping the images from the bottom, building to the top.
  2. For the leaves, ink stamp first with Crushed Curry.  Before stamping, use a Sponge Dauber to add Terracotta Tile ink randomly to the leaves.  Breathe on stamp to re-moisten and then stamp.
  3. Stamp sentiment slightly overlapping leave image.
  4. To create the "spotlight" - die cut sentiment with Stitched Rectangle Die.
  5. When assembling card - adhere sentiment last with Stampin' Dimensionals.

2019 Holiday Catalog Beauty & Joy stamp set, with EASY Spotlight Technique by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

When I first started stamping this card, I wasn't sure what direction I was going.  I thought I'd add the sentiment as a separate layer.  But I didn't want it to cover up the two-toned leaves.  Then the idea hit me..."spotlight" the sentiment.  It was the perfect way to step-up this card just a little bit.  And...it was a hit at my club class last week!

Your day with bloom with beauty and joy as you create amazing projects using the Beauty & Joy Stamp Set.  I definitely recommend adding it to your Shopping Bag today!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Accented Blooms Watercolor Wash Technique

Today I'm sharing a technique card that uses one of my favorite stamp sets that was introduced last year...Accented Blooms.

Accented Blooms Watercolor Wash card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  

How'd She DO That? Accented Blooms Watercolor Wash Tips:

  1. Heat emboss image as described above.
  2. Use Aqua Painter to lightly cover the areas to be colored with water. 
  3. Squeeze ink pad together and open.  Pick up some of the ink pooled in the inside cover and "wash" color over the floral images (Blackberry  Bliss and Flirty Flamingo).  NOTE: You may want to pull a little ink off the brush before coloring - as you can always add more color.  Let completely dry.  Then adhere to 4-1/4" x 8-1/2" folded Blackberry Bliss card base.
  4. Stamp sentiment on scrap of white and cut with Tailored Tag Punch.  Adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. Loop a piece of Nature's Twine and adhere behind tag with Glue Dots.

What do you think?  Cool, huh?

If you haven't added the Accented Blooms stamp set to your collection yet, be sure to add it to your shopping bag today!  Oh, and don't forget to get the Tailored Tag Punch too.  

Enjoy~Dawn O

Vintage Style Daisy Lane Card & 3 Ways to Sponge

Last weekend we spent an extended weekend at our cabin.  It was nice and peaceful, which gave me time to stamp for fun. 

One of the stamp sets I brought with me as the NEW Daisy Lane stamp set.  Also available in a Bundle & Save 10% with the NEW Medium Daisy Punch.  This was one of the projects I came up with...

Vintage style Daisy Lane (from Stampin' Up!) card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #daisylane

For this card, I kinda went "old school" and reached for my Stamping Sponges, which I haven't done in a long time.  It actually brought back memories from when I first began stamping.  Sponging was all the rage!

DOstamping Vintage Daisy Lane card:

  • Stamps/Bundles: Daisy Lane
  • Paper:
    • Sahara Sand (11" x 4-1/4" card base, scrap for "tag") 
    • Whisper White (4" x 5-1/4")
    • Old Olive (scrap for 3-1/8" x 1-13/16" rectangle)
    • Crushed Curry (scraps for daisies)
  • Ink: Sahara Sand, Old Olive
  • Other:  Stamping Sponges, Timeless Label Punch, Linen Thread, SNAIL, Glue Dots, & Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Shopping List:  see below

Vintage style Daisy Lane (from Stampin' Up!) card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #daisylane

How'd She DO That? tips:

Create a different kind of background with a "swiped" direct to paper look from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #papercrafting #stampingtechniques

Direct to Paper Technique:

  • On Whisper White panel, swipe Sahara Sand ink using Direct to Paper technique.  Drag ink pad across cardstock.  
  • I did the top half in one direction and the bottom half in the other direction
  • TIP:  depending on how firmly you press on to the cardstock will determine how dark the ink will transfer.  I prefer a light to medium "press" (you can always add more if you want).

Learn 3 types of sponging from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #papercrafting #stampingtechniques

Three Ways to Sponge:

  1. For the "swiped" panel, first stamp multiple leaves with Old Olive ink, stamp a couple times before re-inking again.  Then sponge the edges using a "circular" motion.  Start off the cardstock (on scratch paper), moving onto the edges of the panel.  Repeat on all four sides.  Repeat again for a darker edge (the photo shows a darker edge)
  2. For the Old Olive Rectangle, I used a "flicking motion".  Hold the cardstock in one hand and the sponge in the other.  Press sponge onto ink pad, then "flick" the sponge against the edges of the cardstock.
  3. For the Daisy pieces:
    1. Cut 4 flowers using the Medium Daisy Punch (you'll need 2 flowers for each full flower)
    2. The flowers I pounced ink in the center, carefully moving outwards a little bit.  Then "flick" the tip of the petals.  NOTE:  you'll need to flower punch outs for each flower.
    3. The flower center is stamped stamped tone-on-tone (Sahara Sand) using the large daisy image.  Sponge the center, then fussy cut out (or use 1/2" circle punch.  Then "flicked" the edges.

03

Transform Timeless Label punch out into a tag by trimming off one end.  I see myself using this "trick" a lot in the future!

Vintage style Daisy Lane (from Stampin' Up!) card by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #daisylane

I have to admit, this was not the card I started out to create.  But as I only brought limited supplies with me, it forced me to go in a different direction.  In the end, I was more than pleased with the finished card.  What do you think?

So...you may have noticed over the past few weeks, I seem to have a new "favorite" stamp set each week.

This week, my favorite is the Daisy Lane Bundle (151118 - save 10%)

  • It's easy to show your friends & family how much you love and support them with a stunning daisy card, like today's card.
  • And...the Medium Daisy Punch is a fun way to add daisies to your projects (size is approximately 1-5/8")

You'll definitely want to add the Daisy Lane Bundle to your shopping bag today!  And while there, be sure to stop by the Clearance Rack, as it's been refreshed with new deals!

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stamping with the STARS #317: Wild Rose Floating Frame Inspiration

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts317.  This week we're showcasing Floating Frame cards.

Stampin with the STARS #DOswts317 Floating Frame Technique #dostamperstars #dostamping #papercrafting

Floating Frame Technique using To a Wild Rose (from Stampin' Up) shared by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts317 #dostamping #dostamperstars #stampingtechnique #papercrafting #cardmaking #stampinup
The Floating Frame Technique has been floating around the internet lately and the STARS thought we should give it a try.  I've seen a couple different ways of doing it.  For my cards today, I used Glad Press'n Seal.

Floating Frame Technique using To a Wild Rose (from Stampin' Up) shared by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts317 #dostamping #dostamperstars #stampingtechnique #papercrafting #cardmaking #stampinup

How'd She DO That? Wild Rose Floating Frame card:

  • Bundle: To a Wild Rose stamp set with Wild Rose Dies
  • Paper:
    • Basic Black (5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card base)
    • Whisper White (two of 4" x 5-1/2" (one for inside), and scrap for greeting die)  
    • Whisper White (full sheet for flowers and leaves)
  • Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento, Mango Melody, Calypso Coral & Granny Apple Green
  • Other:  Rectangle Stitched Dies, Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Stamping Tips: Stamp outline image first, then stamp "solid" image by stamping off first.  Then "detailed" image by stamping off first too.  I did this for both the flowers and leaves

DOstamping Floating Frame Instructions:

  1. Stamp several flowers and leaves (To a Wild Rose)
  2. Die cut with matching dies (Wild Rose)
  3. Arrange (but do not adhere) on 5-1/2" x 4" piece of Whisper White
  4. Cover with a piece of Press'n Seal, to keep everything in place.  Smooth over lightly, but be sure to press down firmly over any "empty areas" (this will help to make sure everything stays together for the next steps)
  5. Trim off overhanging edges, THEN REMOVE Whisper White panel (save)
  6. Die cut opening with Stitched Rectangle Die (2-9/16"x 4")
  7. Flip over and add a lot of Stampin' Dimensionals & Mini Stampin' Dimensionals (I used edges too).
  8. Adhere "frame" to saved Whisper White panel, then to folded card.  Remove Press'n Seal.
  9. Stamp sentiment.

Floating Frame Technique using To a Wild Rose (from Stampin' Up) shared by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #DOswts317 #dostamping #dostamperstars #stampingtechnique #papercrafting #cardmaking #stampinup

Save the center piece to create another card

  • Adhere to 3-3/8"  x 4-3/8" Basic Black Stitched Rectangle
  • Adhere to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" folded So Saffron card base. 
  • Sentiment strip measures 5/8" x 4-1/4"

This is one of those kind of card techniques that takes a little extra time, but it's worth it.  Especially since it will create two cards!

Last note:  I'm completely in LOVE with our new dies.  Why?  Because the die shapes perfectly line up with the stamped image, yet there still is a little white space surrounding the shape after cutting.  It's a perfect cut each time!!

Get the To a Wild Rose Bundle today - you'll love it!

Enjoy~Dawn O
